    Just one question:

    When will somebody be coming out with a super low range (4:1) kit for the 241 (or 205 or 208)?

    Can't afford a doubler and the associated mods yet, real life is killing me!

    I don't know of any kits available right now, but I figure even if there are it would still be cheaper to go with the doubler. I just need the adapter to finish my Doub' which will total to about 800 bones....since I found a 205 and a 203 rangebox cheap...

    Won't happen to a 205. the big gear is the size of the case. The small gear would be weak if it were any smaller.
    Possible on a 241 in the future.

    your '89 is going to have a 700R. add that to a 208/241 and add 5.13 gears and you got the "Poor Man's Doubler"

    or you can add an underdrive unit.

    I've been working on a 3.2:1 kit for a NP205...

    BUUUUTTT....

    I'd have to buck off the whole bottom of the case, make a gasket and a new "pan" to get the gears back in there. That, and I would also have to machine EVERY gear in there from solid stock. It can be done, you've gotta clearance pretty much EVERYTHING, and it isnt really finacially feasable, or do-able to ship cases back and forth to be clearanced.

    NP203's...they're not so bad. I've managed to get a 3.7:1 kit in one of those. Had to hack the [darn] outta the case, but it can be done.

    Oh, and The NP205 gear kit would be well over a thousand USD. The most "financially feasable" means of a doubler is the StaZworks kit.

    If I ever do it, I am going to put a Klune in between the 700 and 241. Nothing like having a 115 crawl ratio with an auto. I'd rather do a Klune than ORD Doubler, nothing wrong with the Doubler, just think the Klune is more practical.

    But if I were to build doubler it would be with the 203 3:1 Kit and tripple stick converstion /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Even though I can't do it now, my personal belief is that anything under 4:88 is useless anyway. Running 3:73s now, but when the 14bolt goes in, believe me, 5:13s or death. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif
